  • Rachel Mannheimer

“How many voices can sustain an entire book-length poem? I think of Claudia Rankine and Maggie Nelson. And here, Mannheimer, as she thinks aloud on the page with her supple, discerning intelligence. This is that rare work that is both profoundly alert to its historical moment and also, in the questions it entertains and the magnitude of its intent, timeless. It seems to me a lesson in how to make something of where we find ourselves.”

— From the foreword by Louise Glück
